I took a tour of Premier's kindergarten/first grade combined class this week. Does anyone have any experience or reviews? I would love to hear other parents' experiences. Thank you.

I loved it! It is a little on the expensive side, but the class size was very small (about 12 kids in both). Combining the grade levels really seems to help the kids develop leadership skills: an older kid can pair up with someone younger than them to help with scissors practice, etc. there really wasn't a whole lot of difference throughout the day for both sides. The core assignments were on different levels, but IIRC they did handwriting, music, and other activities together. It was a great experience for us!

Thank you! Do you feel your child was prepared for the next grade when he/she left?

Very much so! I thought the teacher was caring, compassionate, and wanted the kids to succeed. It was a nice, intimate atmosphere and my son did very well with that.
